Matriculation and end-of-studies certificates
A matriculation certificate is provided for every semester of studies at EPFL, once the student has completed the procedure to register for that semester. It is available to download and print out directly from the IS-Academia portal.
An end-of-studies certificate is provided as soon as matriculation has ended, regardless of the reason why the studies have ended (succsseful completion of a study program, definitive failure, dropping out, or disciplinary measures). It is available to download and print out directly from the IS-Academia portal. This document may be required, e.g., to register with another University.
For more information about the end of studies, please consult the page End of studies and reregistration.
Certificate for the unemployment office
The end-of-studies certificate may be used to attest the end of matriculation at EPFL. If need be, the Registrar’s office can certify this certificate. Please send a request by email to the Student Services Desk, making sure to provide the PDF of the certificate (if in your possession).
Certificate about teaching languages
A generic certificate is available on the webpage about teaching languages. No specific certificate can be delivered on this topic.
Certificate about the semester invoice
The semester invoice may in no way be generated before the validation of the Academic Reregistration Form. A generic certificate is available on the webpage about the semester invoice. No specific certificate can be delivered on this topic.
Certificate about the structure and unfolding of studies
The structure and unfolding of studies at EPFL can lead to semesters with a complete leave of absence or part-time studies independently from the students’ own decision. Should it be necessary to make this known to an external body (e.g., for the renewal of a visa, residence permit, or scholarship), a generic certificate is available on the webpage about the requirements for passing.
For any other specific certificate, please submit your request to the Student Services Desk.
If it is possible for the Registrar’s Office to produce the requested certificate, you will need to order it by completing the online form Commande de documents Bachelor / Master (in French only) and paying a flat fee of Fr. 30.-.
‘Certificat de scolarité’
EPFL does not give out a ‘certificat de scolarité.’ It provides its students with a matriculation certificate (once the semester invoice has been settled), which confirms that the student is registered for a given semester, and a grade sheet, which lists the subjects taken and the grades obtained. This generic certificate (in French only) can serve to confirm this e.g. when renewing a scholarship.
